A brief history of
the Gin & Tonic

Possibly the most famous Gin cocktail, the Gin & Tonic has a complex history. The cocktail is believed to date back to 1857 when the British took governance of India. The British concocted a 'tonic' of quinine and cinchona bark to ward off malaria but the taste was bitter and harsh. In true British fashion, their favourite spirit Gin was added to make the tonic more palatable, and there you have it, the Gin & Tonic was born. Click here for more info.
